There is no doubt that there is nothing quite like shopping for furniture for the growing child. After all, children tend to grow the most when you least expect it and keeping ahead of the curve with bedroom furniture that suits their size is an important factor when deciding how to redecorate their room. In addition to their bedroom or playroom, you can also put child-sized furniture in your family room or living room.
Among the items, you can get sized for children are small chaise lounges. Chaise lounges are a much better option than other child-sized options like recliners or accent chairs. The chaise can be used as a chair, a bench, or, when necessary, a pint-sized bed. The versatility of a chaise makes it perfect for use in almost any room in your home. Child and teen-sized chaises are also lighter weight than their full-sized counterparts, making them easier to maneuver throughout the home as needed.
Of course, you can find a small chaise lounge chair among typical living room furniture collections as well, but you’ll find the best deals within furniture collections designed for children. There are some features you should look for when it comes to buying the right chaise for your child, but the main thing you need to consider is safety.
To that end, you should choose an upholstery option that is durable and safe. Polyester is the best textile for children because it is naturally more spill-resistant and stain resistant than other fabrics, while also being a flame and heat retardant material. That makes it the safest and easiest to clean of all upholstery options.
No matter where you look for a chaise, you should keep this in mind. Any upholstery can be made spill-resistant and stain-resistant by being scotch guarded, or similar treatments depending on the fabrics and textiles used.
Whatever room you are choosing a chaise for at this time, you should consider other areas in your home that could benefit from a chaise. A small chaise lounge in your child’s room gives them a place for a playmate to nap or sleepover for the night.
Placed in the family room it gives a younger child a place of their own to be while making that place the natural resting spot for a nap or night’s slumber while the adults and older children go on with more advanced entertainment. If you have a rec room or use your dining room for a card table, you should consider putting one there as well.
Another place you might consider placing a chaise is in your home office. If you are working from home, or if you spend a lot of time in a craft room, you can put a small chaise lounge in your work area so that your child has a place to play and nap within your sight while you go about your day.
